Powerglide was another good album and this is a great song I saw this video and I had not thought of NRPS in Europe at the Beat Club Germany in May 72.I guess they came as the Dead left.
Torbert and Marmaduke had very pleasing voices, A short set but nice

I believe -tho am not certain- they accompanied the Dead to Europe and opened some of those shows. The pedal steel Jerry plays some on (i.e. Looks Like Rain), early in April, would have to have been brought along as part of the Riders' gear. And if you've ever seen that Anthem to Beauty documentary there's NRPS guys shown in the 'home movies,' riding on the bus trips across the European countryside. Apparently they stayed on over there a bit longer- I'd guess an invitation to do a TV show was probably difficult to pass up for a band looking to develop a following.

I never knew that and I have not seen the doc. I will look for it.
I wonder where they went to after this set, an hour away.
Shocking story about Torbert's mike and the guy electrocuted weeks before from another band. They laugh it off.
